Chances are that your business uses fluorescent and high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps. These lamps contain a small quantity of mercury that can be harmful to the environment and to human health when improperly managed. Mercury is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is why your company should participate in lamp recycling.
Di (2-ethylhexyl) phathatlate (DEHP) is a substance that was used to replace PCBs in certain ballast capacitors beginning in 1979. DEHP in its purest form is listed as a hazardous waste, and may be in some of your office equipment.
Both substances must be properly disposed of, which is why your business should trust SAMR to do the job right. We can ensure your company properly recycles your lamps, ballasts and electronic waste.
